Episode 14: You know how there are certain people that just explode with radiant awesomeness everywhere they go? That’s how I feel about today’s guest.

Shawn Stevenson is a Professional Nutritionist specializing in biochemistry and kinesiology. He is the author of several books and programs including The Fat Loss Code and The Key to Quantum Health. He holds a Bachelors of Science degree from The University of Missouri – St. Louis, and he is the founder of the Advanced Integrative Health Alliance.

Over more than a decade of research, Shawn’s work has touched the lives of thousands of people in his private practice, programs, and live events. Shawn’s greatest gift has been providing a tremendous array of valuable strategies, techniques, and proven methods for radically transforming the health and beauty of the human body.

Shawn is the host of The Model Health Show and has been featured on Clear Channel Radio, TEDx, and FOX Television. He also is the author of the best-selling book Sleep Smarter: 21 Proven Tips to Sleep Your Way To a Better Body, Better Health and Bigger Success.

Not only does he have a ton of amazing information but he delivers it in a way that makes the lightbulbs light up, so to say. This was probably one of my favourite episodes thus far.
